If you’ve recently splashed out on your first set of fancy but super sharp French knives, you might wanna learn some knife skills. Especially if you don’t know how to separate broccoli florets, split a pumpkin without taking an axe to it, or disjoint a bird — or if you’ve attempted all of the above and ended up being the butchered one.
Before this book, it was all about winging it. I also became really good at cooking while wearing Macguyver’d bandages made of paper towels and rubber bands.
Knife Skills isn’t 100% accident proof, but at least I can do a bitchin julienne.
